Paul and Liz Davenport are singers and sword dancers from Hull and latterly Maltby. They sing their own and traditional songs in beautiful unison – a style that seems to be vanishing from singing clubs. The accuracy of their phrasing and the blend of their voices creates the fat sound we associate with harmony and I’m not the only person who didn’t immediately spot that they were singing in unison. At least one folk festival has booked them and asked for a harmony workshop. Which they delivered.
They’re great. They write songs you can’t help but join in with; they sound amazing; Liz cooks a delicious Anzac biscuit and I’m reliably informed that Paul looks astonishing in a dance belt and tights.
